What I like about it so far is that they are trying to spruce up the beginning areas at least of the old zones so that there won't be so many draenei and blood elves around due to their easier levelling curve.

After trying out the new worgen and the new improved night elf ( found a new user problematic bug already ) and the new improved human areas and it seems they are almost similar in questing time for the same level range.

The one thing I dislike about the premade toons - they ALL have enchanting and jewelcrafting as their tradeskills....

New tradeskill stuff really isn't in there yet (at least for inscription based on me copying my scribe).

I do like the Worgen starting area....it's pretty fun and different. Will try Goblin out later.

The Goblin starting experience is quite different than the Worgen. I reached 100 quests under my Goblin near the end, before you get the transition to Dutorar.

Yeah because copy and pasting a cookie cutter build from elitiest jerks was such a mindstrain.

Possible sarcasm involved! :P

Why is that strange? The game works fine under Wine, and that's all that matters - I don't need an officially-supported platform to write code.

Agreed. I occasionally have to play in Windows, but I do all my addon work in Linux under Wine.

I keep expecting a BG message saying "If you guys would learn to cap three and defend, we'd be winning right now!"

Anyway, maybe this patch will deal with some of the little problems like HUNTERS NOT HAVING RELIABLE PETS!

sorry, I know it's a beta, but I really LIKE my hunter...

That's actually a combo update patch including all the beta builds so far.

Looks like they're also getting rid of redundant patch data in the previous builds as well if the analysis from the #wowace peeps is correct.

This would be why the combo update build updater thingy is actually smaller then the build updaters it's replacing.

I reinstalled beta last night. Despite me having all the beta builds downloaded it went straight to download and install the latest 1.38 GB build updater first. I then applied all the other builds first and when done it still wanted to install the 1.38 GB build :/

I agree I also run Linux and play wow with wine. Up to this point I have found very few reasons to run windows. I mean lets face it there are opensource replacements for just about any windows program you could ever need. But when I have to VmWare is just a click away.

Sinkthrow: Spell does normal weapon damage + 15 million, kajillion, fofillian, bajillion damage over 1 second. Spell cannot be blocked, evaded or dodged.

New specs for Sinkthrow in the Beta.

Another (much smaller) patch incoming now. 108 mb

Wishing Blizz would update their patch notes, so we could easily see what's supposedly fixed or changed.

Yea, the new Seizurehorse is pretty good. I like the model, anyways. They *might* have to do some adjustments to the speed of the movement animation though

(Nope, I didn't speed up the playback... really!)

LOL! If it was in black and white, I could see the Keystone Kops trying to chase you down for speeding!

On a side note, if anyone is having the problem of not being able to train, for the time being you have to drop one of your two primary professions. Then you should be able to train in class abilities, riding and secondary profs.
